Swine flu goes after indie rockers! Swedish troubador Jens Lekman catches dreaded illness

Posted on

We haven’t heard much on the swine flu front in a while, but the dreaded H1N1 virus is still on the attack: the latest afflicted is adorable Swedish singer/songwriter Jens Lekman, who found out he was sick after fainting on an airplane.

Lekman blogged of his fellow passengers: ”People’s eyes were kind but determined, they read ‘Poor you, I reallywish you all the best but if you come near me or my kid I will have tostab you with this plastic fork’.” He’s now quarantined for ten days.Wish him well, Music Mixers! And just for old time’s sake, enjoy the classic (circa 2003) Jens track about a more benign form of transportation, “Black Cab,” below:
